William Haines and Joan Crawford

For your enjoyment: Here’s a clip from the silent film West Point, starring William Haines and Joan Crawford. The footage is from a great documentary from Turner Classic Movies called Joan Crawford: The Ultimate Movie Star.

I’ve set the footage against an early performance by Joan singing “I Never Knew Heaven Could Speak.” I’ve also included a few photos of Joan and Bill together.

“Wealthy Bruce Wayne enters West Point and, though he does well on the football field, angers fellow cadets with his arrogance. Disciplined by the coach he yells “To hell with the Corps!” which would have led to further discipline but for the intervention of his hero-worshipping roommate “Tex.” He resigns anyway, but just before the big game returns to lead his team and reunite with Betty Channing, the hotel owner’s daughter.” — from imdb.com
